Andre The Hilarious Hypnotist, one of South Africa’s funniest entertainers, is a firm favourite on the Johannesburg theatre scene each year in January as one of the best ways to chase away the New Year Blues.
2020 is no different as his fans will be delighted to hear he will be returning to The Studio Theatre at Montecasino from Wednesday 22nd January – Sunday 23rd February – but this time it’s as part of his Farewell Tour.
Andre will be hanging up his colourful coat after 28 years in the industry as he leaves our shores to practice his hypnosis on other willing participants abroad. BUT – he wanted to entertain the Jozi audiences one last time, more especially at the Pieter Toerien Theatre & Studio at Montecasino – which has been his home in January for the past 10 years.
Says Andre, “I want to thank the Joburg audiences who have supported me in a career; those who have volunteered on stage and those who sat and laughed out loud, each one a person without which I would never have had a career.”
Andre combines his skills in comedy and hypnosis to create a 2-hour show of side-splitting entertainment suitable for all ages.
Andre takes his volunteers on a hilarious hypnotic journey in which they imagine they are sprinklers, dinosaurs, washing machines, Superman and Mrs South Africa, with Michael Jackson and Christina Aguilera added for good measure.
No two shows are ever the same as the shows strength lies in the fact that every night’s volunteers are completely different, leading to a diverse hilarious action-packed evening performance. With every person reacting differently to Andre’s suggestion, not even Andre knows what to expect when he steps up on stage.
